Pierre Girardin, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2019Regular price $265.00 Save $-265.00
It’s rare that a Burgundy winemaker has success on just their first vintage, but Pierre Girardin has defied all odds. Even with the first, there was a distinctive voice to the wines not often seen so early in a winemaker’s career. Working in the cellar almost from the time he could walk, he is now the 13th generation of his family making wine. Even though Girardin senior sold the domain in 2011, he kept 4.5 hectares of his best plots to pass on to Pierre. Beyond the domain wines, Pierre continues to purchase from growers who share the same views.
This Corton-Charlemagne is coming from the Aloxe side of Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru. These are 75+ year old vines and ageing takes place in 456L barrels, 40% of which are new.
